Orange Asian-Style Dressing

It’s yummy! Trust me….


Oil-Free Italian Dressing

1 cup cold water or light vegetarian broth
2 tsp cornstarch…


“Honey” Lime Cilantro Salad Dressing

This dressing is great on a grain-based salad as well – such as quinoa with vegetables.


Diane’s Creamy Tahini/Herb Salad Dressing

I must admit that salad dressing is my big “frustration” with this program. I have come up with one salad dressing that I really do like … it’s “creamy” and just “rich” enough to satisfy, plus it’s a welcome change from vinegar.


Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

I’ve discovered that I really like raspberry dressing, but most of the fatfree ones in the grocery store have too much sugar. I found this recipe and have been experimenting with cutting down on the calories by decreasing the apple juice concentrate.


Gingery Vinaigrette

This is my lower-fat, vegan version of Annie’s Gingerly Vinaigrette (which contains honey). I’ve used ground flax seeds to thicken it–as well as add essential Omega 3’s.


Green Goddess Dressing or Dip

Good on salad, avocado or jacket potatoes. You may want to add seasonings to taste.


Smashed Pepper Peas

Peas are good, but these peas are awesome. Serve as an alternative to mashed potatoes. . . Without any added fat!

Southwestern Black Bean Burgers

The delicious blend of southwestern flavor paired with the the creamy pureed black beans make for an exquisitely flavorful veggie patty. Plus adding the cornmeal to the mixture also helped to give these patties a crispy texture once baked. –from kaitsinsidedish

Kung Pao Vegetables

Kung Pao Vegetables

I like to prepare this so that the vegetables are crunchy. I cut everything and mix the sauce in advance so I can move quickly. It’s quick and one of our favorite dishes.–cheried

    • Fat-Free Whole Wheat Bread for Bread Machines
      I was in graduate school the first time I made bread. Years before I became vegetarian, I was trying on vegetarianism as a weight-loss diet and cooking vegetarian dishes out of a popular cookbook of that era.

    • Upside Down Oatmeal Sundae (and Getting My Goat)
      September was a bit of a bumpy month for me–literally. About 3 weeks ago, walking full speed and barefoot, I ran my left little toe smack into one of the hardwood claw feet on my couch. The impact separated it from the rest of my toes, and instantly I knew I was in very painful […]
